i like to think that i have a mean poker face.
A poker face gained through years of gambling leftover halloween candy. We sat in a circle on the hardwood floors in the kitchen, our candy piled in front of each of us. Our eyes shifted between each other, gauging at each moment just how much that Reese’s cup or Snickers bar was worth in the other person’s eyes. An eight-year-old standoff… as hardcore as they come.
This snickers cake is next level, because it has ACTUAL snickers bars in the filling. Melted down snickers and butter and goodness paired with chocolate cake and chocolate buttercream = tasty snickers cake. When you’re melting down the snickers, the chocolate and caramel will melt first. Be patient while the nougat is melting. It’ll get softer and softer, but will kind of congeal in a pile in the middle of the butter. (Appetizing, isn’t it? Stick with me. The snickers cake is worth it.) Just be patient and use a spatula to keep smushing down the nougat and give it a vigorous stir. (Careful, there, though. I threw butter on the microwave AND my favorite ninja turtle pjs.) It won’t be perfectly melted, but it’ll get close.
And. ya know. It’s not a snickers cake without more snickers on top. 🙂
